Diary of a Resurrectionist Saturday 11th January 1812

Saturday 11th,
At 4 a.m. got up & went to the Hospital Crib, got 2 adults, met at Barthol’w, packed up 2 for the Country, sold 1 at St. Thomas’s: at home all night.

Being Saturday, two bodies were packed up to be sent to the country (their destination is no more specific than that on this occaision).

It is unlikely that Naples was working on his own, but he is not specific about who is in the party on this night either.
